Charming rooms, classic cooking, fine wines, great beer.

The perfect place to unwind with tasty food, friendly service, good pints and lovely rooms. All housed in a beautiful Tudor Inn.

Situated in the heart of Clare, the Bell Hotel dates back to before the Tudor era, when in 1580 a small alehouse was converted to become The Green Dragon. Since then, the building has been a posthouse, a chandlery and even a cattle market.

The ancient, grade II listed, building still retains its atmosphere and long history, though it has been refurbished and updated to offer modern comforts with WI-FI and Sky TV in all rooms.

The Bell Hotel caters for both business and leisure guests, and is family and dog friendly. Our resident bear, Fred Ted, is on hand to entertain, and we keep a ready supply of dog biscuits behind the bar.

Our Head Chef produces hearty breakfasts, light lunches and delicious dinners, with a list of fine wines and selection of real ales.

We host a variety of public events throughout the year. We also have 2 function rooms for hire for you to host your own special occasion.

The Bell Hotel's 15 ensuite bedrooms combine character and comfort. Choose from twin, double, family or four-poster.
